I think the flat black line on its own looks out of place with the
rest of the style which uses soft edges everywhere, and that the bold
text with indentation is a clear delimiter.  I could try a different
line style and see what it looks like.

You're right about the inconsistency, but then again there aren't
really any guides on when to use which style, and the dialog featured
in the screenshots was designed with this particular group box look in

In dialog pages which consist of several titled sections, arranged
vertically, I think the flat group box style should be preferred.
